On Monday, the Nassau County Democratic Committee filed more than 13,000 petition signatures on behalf of County Executive Laura Curran’s re-election campaign. The Committee in partnership with dozens volunteers from across the county collected more than twenty times the necessary signature threshold throughout the month of March and filed them on the first possible day, demonstrating the strength and organization of the party and the re-election effort.
New York State Party Chair Jay Jacobs released the following statement: “The thousands of signatures filed yesterday show that we are using every moment to organize and talk to voters. Voters are excited to re-elect Laura Curran, a leader they know and trust, as County Executive and our Nassau County Democratic volunteer infrastructure is already showing what it is capable of.”
County Executive Laura Curran also released a statement upon hearing the news: “I am so grateful to the Nassau County Democratic Committee and the dozens of dedicated volunteers who carried our petitions and delivered this tremendous haul of signatures,” said Nassau County Executive Laura Curran. “I’m excited to hit the campaign trail and bring my message to voters as we push toward November. They know what I do: That we need tested and trusted leadership through it all and that’s what I will continue to provide to Nassau families.”
County Executive Curran is running for re-election with more than $2 million on hand.
